Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Stay ahead of the game with Samsung's 2017 version of the Galaxy A3 smartphone to enjoy a longer battery life, richer detail and brighter colours. The new device is constructed with a highly resistant rear 3D Glass and robust super AMOLED 4.7" display for elegant strength and optimum HD viewing.

Happy snappy
Use the 13-megapixel main camera to remember every moment just as it was when you first saw it. Thanks to the preset camera filters you'll also be able to manipulate your photos to enhance your subject matter to increase your 'likes' on social media. No need to worry about taking blurry selfies anymore as the A3's 8-megapixel front camera will ensure every shot is sharp.

Full protection
As you'll no double be taking the Galaxy A3 out in the wind and the rain to keep the boredom at bay while you wait for the bus it's built with IP68 level. This means it can withstand raindrops, dust particles and can be immersed in up to 1.5 metres of water for up to 30 minutes.

Expandable storage
With 16GB of storage on board, the Galaxy A3 is ready for your apps and games. But if you find yourself running out of space or want to keep your entire music collection with you, then a memory card slot will let you add a microSD card (sold separately) of up to 256GB, massively expanding your device's available storage space.

Privacy ensured
The Galaxy A3 comes equipped with a Secure Folder in which you can house selected apps and sensitive data to keep it locked up and separate from standard content. This is ideal for keeping banking and interactive apps, so your details are well protected. It also enables you to log in using one-time authentication, saving you time when you're shopping on the go.

Cloud storage
Every Samsung account comes with 15GB of storage to allow you to free up space on your device when you need it. Plus, you can easily backup important files and documents, so you can access them wherever you are.
